If there is no undergoing effort to "port" VTK to vcpkg, we could go ahead
and add ITK with VTKGlue disabled. Once VTK is added, we could turn on
VTKGlue and make VTK a dependency.

P.S. I originally cross-posted this to ITK and VTK developers lists, but
since I am only subscribed to VTK-users my message was bounced from
VTK-developers. Hence this "merge" message including Francois' response.

to me, vtk-developers, ITK
Never heard of it before. It does look interesting. We could try to
estimate how much work it would be to port ITK (and VTK?)  to that
platform. Since it supports CMake [1], it may not be much work.
